Instructions on Proper Battery Disposal

Instead, they should be taken to separate recycling or household hazardous waste collection points. To prevent fires, tape battery terminals and/or place lithium-ion batteries in separate plastic bags.
How Do Lithium Ion Batteries Work?
Energy is stored and released as lithium ions travel from the electrodes to the electrolyte. The charger passes current to the battery. Lithium ions move from the cathode to the anode through the electrolyte. The battery is charged by a potential difference between the 2 electrodes.
